Friday/ a new cast

The stitches on my wrist & arm came out today.
Next up was an X-ray to peek inside, and make sure the scaphoid and lunate bones are still in their proper places.
The surgeon said everything looks good.
Finally, I got a new cast.

I have a little more of my fingers and thumb exposed. (Good.)
First layer on the skin was an elongated fabric sock, then a little padding around the wrist and a bandage wrap on the wrist and arm.. Finally, on came a gauze wrap, soaked with cornstarch that made it harden into a shell.
Four weeks in this cast, and then another check-up.
